Fireworks should be flying on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football betting battle at the Georgia Dome, as the Atlanta Falcons play host to the high flying New Orleans Saints.
It’s not do or die time for the Saints, but it’s certainly getting close to that. The team already has six losses this year, and it doesn’t seem like much more than maybe one more could be afforded to still get into the playoffs.
Atlanta has raced out to a 9-1 straight-up (6-4 against the spread) start that has it three games ahead of Tampa Bay in the NFC South and holding a two-game lead for the No.1 seed in the entire conference. The Falcons are 4-1 both SU and ATS on the road this season and the total has stayed UNDER in four of their last six games.
After four weeks, both of these teams were unbeaten. Since then, these two teams have gone in very different directions. The Arizona Cardinals have lost five straight games, and they now sit at 4-5 on the season. Atlanta was unbeaten until last week’s tough 31-27 loss at New Orleans. The Falcons will look to return to their winning ways as they return home for this one. Arizona is just looking to get off the mat. Let’s take a look at this NFC matchup.
The Atlanta Falcons are unbeaten halfway through the season. Atlanta has been a great regular season team over the last couple years, but they haven’t been able to have any success in the playoffs. The Falcons are looking to put it all together this year. The team they take on this week may be 3-5, but the New Orleans Saints are clearly a very dangerous team. Look for a great game in the SuperDome this Sunday.
The Cowboys were literally inches away from sweeping the New York Giants this season, but a late touchdown was ruled out of bounds in last Sunday’s heart-breaking 29-24 loss to their NFC East rivals. The loss dropped Dallas under .500 on the year at 3-4 both straight-up and against the spread. The total has gone OVER in three of its last four games.
The Atlanta Falcons are the only undefeated team in the NFL. The Philadelphia Eagles may have more pressure on them right now than any other team in the NFL. The Eagles have been good coming off a bye week under Andy Reid, and they’ll need to be very good in this one. Who has the edge in what may be the biggest game of the weekend?
NFL betting action heads to Landover on Sunday afternoon for a crucial clash between NFC rivals, as the Atlanta Falcons hit the road to battle it out with the Washington Redskins.
And then there were two. With the Arizona Cardinals losing on Thursday, Atlanta is now the only team in the NFC and one of the two in football (joining the Houston Texans) to still have a donut in the loss column.
The Atlanta Falcons are one of only three unbeaten teams left in the NFL after three weeks. The Falcons blasted San Diego last week on the road, and now they return home to face a divisional foe. Carolina was blitzed at home last week by the New York Giants, but the Panthers do have the ability to be a difficult matchup for the Falcons. Let’s take a look at this NFC South matchup.
Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers were actually favored last Thursday night at home against the dinged up Giants, but New York won 36-7 in an embarrassing game for the Panthers.
There are only six unbeaten teams left in the NFL, and two of them square off this weekend in San Diego. The Chargers have gotten a horribly slow start year after year for so long, but this year San Diego is off to a quick start. Atlanta held off Denver on Monday Night Football, and the Falcons look like one of the better teams in the NFC. Which team will start 3-0 this season?
Matt Ryan has yet to have any success in the postseason, but it seems like he and the Falcons have a team to do some damage this year.
The Atlanta Falcons and the Denver Broncos are set to do battle in NFL betting action on ESPN’s Monday Night Football, and here at Bang the Book, we are taking a peek at some of the NFL props for what should be yet another remarkable game on the gridiron.
Peyton Manning Under 25.5 Completions (+100): Manning looked great last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the truth of the matter is if you go back and look at the box score from that game, he threw the ball just 26 times in the whole game.
